Here’s the proof. The bid on its way from bike to bid reception. I
bumped into John Craig in reception which was nice. I am sure it was a
coincidence or maybe it was because we were causing a bit of concern
setting up to film outside! But it felt good anyway.
He was friendly and, reading between the lines, I think he’s been
really interested in the approach we’ve taken. They are expecting ‘a
number’ of bids and I got the impression that it was number about
halfway-ish between 15 and 25. So, as we breath a sigh of relief and
can get our lives back, the hard work starts for them.
Our full bid less financials (for tender rule reasons) is attached to this post.
Thanks again everybody. This has been a really enjoyable and thought
provoking experience. I, for one, am going to have to completely
re-think the way I do most things!
